SWEET AMERIKA A Sweet Success!


Set in New York City, SWEET AMERIKA is the moving story of Sikh shop owner Balbir “Bobby” Singh (Gulshan Grover), an American Sikh who is kidnapped and tortured by a hateful and misguided gang who seek reprisals following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The film is inspired by true events such as the murder of an Arizona-based Sikh businessman Balbir Singh Sodhi. The film was released in Canadian theatres on September 19, 2008 and the US in May 2009.

Here is what the Critics are saying about Sweet Amerika:

“[Director R. Paul] Dhillon does a great job slicing through language, prejudice, racial stereotyping and outward appearances to get to the emotional heart of the matter and illustrate what hate looks like.”
Katherine Monk – Canada’s National Movie Critic (Canwest News Service)
